Cambridge is one of the best places in the world for education, research and scholarship. At the heart of the city is the University of Cambridge, founded in 1209 and consistently ranked among the top five universities in the world. The University of Cambridge is renowned for its long and distinguished tradition of producing great scholars, thinkers and inventors - Sir Isaac Newton, Sir Francis Bacon, Charles Darwin, Charles Babbage, Alan Turing, Ernest Rutherford and John Harvard, to name a few - people who have pioneered, discovered and developed; people who have shaped the course of modern thinking and history.

Cambridge is a place which prizes learning and scholarship and is at the forefront in almost every field of knowledge. It would provide the ideal environment for the development of rigorous, in-depth Islamic scholarship that is much-needed in this time. Yet, sadly, it has a huge vacuum in this regard. Cambridge Islamic College aims to fill this vacuum.

Furthermore the College aims to answer those important questions in life that have been overlooked and unanswered even by the best  of Cambridge’s scientists and philosophers such as Newton and Darwin.
